So apparently I'm a bad weekend blogger. Not that I didn't have a great weekend, I actually had a pretty fun weekend. Saturday night some good girlfriends came over and we had wine, girl talk, and toe-nail polish fun. I love having those kinds of nights, but it made me miss sleepovers. A couple of weeks ago when I went to Abilene for Kendra's wedding shower I got to bunk in her bed with her, and it was so fun to whisper after lights out until we fell asleep. Don't you miss those days? Sunday was typical church day fun- bible class, church, lunch, got straight in bed when I got home and we woke up 30 minutes before life group started that night. Talk about a lazy day!
Cody has been gone all weekend, but he comes home tonight. Whew! I missed that kid, and I'm totally drained from a weekend of single parenting. Not to mention he wasn't here to see Luke take some of his first steps. I got three out of him today before he realized what was going on and sat down! Cody was supposed to be home last night, but finally at 12 AM I called his BFF (because Cody's phone had died of course) to find out where they were and they were still at the Gulf! I refrained from making any snide "thanks for the heads-up" comments and just told him I would see him today as cheerfully as I could.
Also on Saturday I whipped up this:
It only took me about 1 1/2 hours to make it! That's including drawing and cutting out the letters. I'm trying to get faster and better. Here's a close up of the letters:
Luke has used it after bath time the last couple of days, so I'm interested to see how it holds up in the wash. Speaking of bath...we have a new favorite game:
I like to call it "let me throw everything out of the tub filled with water and create a flood on the floor". Beware- I hear it's catching on like crazy in the mid-west. Where is the mid-west anyway? Could Oregon be considered the mid west? It's the middle stated on the west coast. Hmm. That really is a toughie. Have I mentioned I'm drained? Hence the reason for "blah". Thank goodness I didn't have to go back to work today. Today was the first day back for teachers, and it was odd that almost everyone I know was at work, yet I was at the mall trying on glasses. More about that next week. Ashley and I took Mom out for ice cream when she was done today. That was a tradition that we had growing up; on our first day back to school Mom would always take us to Braum's for ice cream, so we surprised her today. Yummmm...who doesn't like ice cream 2 hours before dinner?
